Power Source

This Bulova Men’s dress watch uses a quality Quartz movement as its power source. This battery will last years and can easily be replaced through the solid stainless steel backing.

The Good

This timepiece would make a great casual watch but it is designed to act as an impressive dress watch — and impress it does. The 39mm Rose Gold-tone case is the perfect case for a sophisticated look while the Rose Gold color remains consistent from the fixed, polished bezel; to the crown; and the dial hands and hour indexes.

With small white second/minute hash marks along the outer rim of the dial and a calendar date window at 3 o’clock, timekeeping is simple and stylish.

The grey dial face and red accents look beautiful underneath the double domed mineral glass protecting this Bulova Men’s Classic.

The strap of this timepiece made from smooth grain leather and the brown makes the Rose Gold-tone look outstanding.

The water resistance is an extra bonus and is resistant to 30 meters.

The Bad

For the price of this Bulova, there are no notable negative aspects to this Classic timepiece.


Bulova uses a quality Quartz movement and materials in this Classic Collection men’s watch. The Quartz movement functions with precision and will tick for years to come. With water resistance up to 50 meters and a double-domed mineral glass to protect the timepiece, you couldn’t ask for more in a watch in this price range.

In addition, the brown smooth grain leather gives this watch a nice, polished-off design that will look great and feel great on your wrist. It is finished off with a three-piece buckle.

The Highlights

The double-domed mineral glass gives this Rose Gold-tone timepiece a fantastic look through the dial window and onto the gorgeously sharp grey dial with red accent lines.

The dial face is a simple analog with a lot of personality and class. The hour indices and three-hand movement are all Rose Gold-toned to match the bezel and 39mm case while the dial itself is grey in color and features two red lines stretching from 12 to 6 and 9 to 3. This gives this men’s watch a very posh-looking British look and reminds one of a plaid dress kerchief.

The juxtaposition of these colors and materials makes for a very unique and original timepiece that you can be sure nobody else has.
